Do you know why CallBack notifiers methods fire on filenames like "D:\[...]\Home\Doc2.docx\:Zone.Identifier:$DATA" ?

This is called "Alternative Data Stream" and is described in documentation.

Internet Explorer (and maybe some other software) writes "Zone.Identifier" stream to indicate the source of the data (i.e. to indicate that the file was taken from insecure zone).

Sincerely yours
